TOM BRADY, BUCCANEERS EMBRACING FIRST CHRISTMAS GAME

The Buccaneers are on the line tis Sunday, clinging to a one-game lead atop the NFC South with only three weeks left and focused on clinching a division title by simply winning the next two games. Tampa Bay has never won back-to-back division titles in its history, so any holiday wish list going into this season would be at the top.

"I've never experienced this one," offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said. "This one is a little different. It's too important of a ballgame to worry about what day it's on. We could [not] care less what day. Our families and everybody understand that, that we're really locked in and have our minds on something bigger than the day of Christmas. We'll get back home and we'll enjoy our time with our families when we can."

For Buccaneers players, the opportunity to play on Christmas brings back a nostalgia to their childhood, when they'd wake up and open presents, watch a game on television and then go outside and play with a new football.

"I'm excited about it, personally," said receiver Russell Gage, who caught two touchdown passes in last week's loss to the Bengals. "Growing up, I watched games on Christmas Day and Thanksgiving, and I was like 'That's awesome. You get to play on a holiday like this? I'm going to go outside in the yard and play football with my friends.' So we get to play on this day, and we're playing for something, playing with purpose. We've got a lot of things at stake, and I've personally never been in the playoffs, so I'm excited.".

    Bowles says Gronkowski contacted him about returning.

    It turns out Rob Gronkowski was feeling the boredom of not playing football earlier this season.

    Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles told the Tampa Bay Times that Gronkowski contacted the team, and he had several discussions with the future Hall of Fame tight end about him returning to the team in November.

    "It was more of a conversation than anything else," Bowles shared. "Usually, when you have to think about playing, you probably don’t want to play. When it’s just a discussion, I didn’t think much of it at the time."

    The discussions about Gronkowski potentially returning came around Thanksgiving. The Buccaneers had their bye week the weekend prior to the holiday and were fresh off two wins to improve to 5-5. However, many of the Buccaneers' offensive struggles have continued following their bye week, as they've lost three of their last four games.

    Gronkowski raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he tweeted "I'm kinda bored" with a neutral face emoji, fueling speculation that he would end his second retirement.

    Gronkowski said that two teams actually reached out to him following his tweet.

    "It was unbelievable," Gronkowski told FanDuel TV on Thursday. "I won’t say who, but yes, there was two teams. It was pretty nuts to me that everyone actually saw the tweet."
